Description Michael J. Brenegan, BMET 2001-10-29 00:05:06 EST
Description of Problem:  After upgrade of 7.1 to 7.2, cdrom no longer 
automounts, and can't be manually mounted, because attempts to do so get 
the message that it's not a valid block device.  The floppy can be 
mounted, and /etc/fstab entry for /dev/cdrom is the same as it was under 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:
Insert cdrom

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert CD
2. Try to mount.

Actual Results:
will not mount.

Expected Results:
cdrom automounts upon insertion.

Run 'depmod -ae' ; that should solve it. This will be fixed in the next
installer release.

I've got the same problem after doing a fresh install of 7.2, but running 
depmod -ae didn't fix it...
